The Snowflower Diaries SAL

This cute fox and crow chart is a freebie gift from Maja of The Snowflower Diaries.  She is gifting monthly charts to anyone who wishes to download and stitch them. 

I am stitching these to be made into a quilt for a senior in a care facility.  

I have already downloaded the February chart and hope to start on it very soon.

Stitchers can either stitch the charts on separate squares of fabric or on one whole piece of fabric.  I chose to stitch them separately, as I don't like to stitch on large pieces of fabric any longer.

December Stitching

A couple more finishes in December 2015.  Now on to the new year!  I've already started a new project for World of Charity Stitching.  We are doing a Sweet Things theme and I am stitching some hard candy.  I found the chart on Cyber-stitchers, where they have loads of free charts.

Love Quilts is re-vamping their organization with new leadership, so I'll have to wait to see what they come up with in the way of new themes for this new year.

2015 Stitching Projects

This is a collage of most of my 2015 stitching.  As you can see, I spend a lot of my free time stitching.  I've been cross stitching for over 30 years and I still enjoy it very much.

I hope to continue stitching until my hands and eyes won't allow it.  So far, my health has been good and I don't have problems with seeing the stitches or the charts. (I do use a very bright light which helps.)  My arthritis is only minimal, so I feel blessed to be able to continue to stitch for charity.
